Shop and eat your way through Fish Market, the site that has served as the meeting place for fisherman, traders, and locals alike since the 12th century. Located in the very center of the city on the wharf, it is one of the most popular outdoor markets in Norway and is often bustling with action. Browse the stalls of fresh fish and other seafood and view the live catches from that morning. Purchase crab, shrimp, caviar, smoked salmon, cod, or even whale from one of the friendly fishmongers. Sample some of the local cuisine at one of the many vendors along the market. You can also buy souvenirs, local art, flowers, fruits, and vegetables here. Arrive early to avoid the crowds. Make Fish Market a centerpiece of your Bergen vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bergen travel planner.

Fish Market reviews
Disappointment Quality of fish is of rather poor quality. And all is very pricy. We went to Burger King for a good meal instead.

Do not look for one. Due to the pandemic, all remained is a booth of take-away food or fruit stall. Hopefully it will be busy again soon.

This place offers great fish. However, the prices are astronomical. If you want to enjoy norwegian fish you are better off in a grocery store.
So expensive even the Norwegians hide away from this spot! Nice layout and friendly staff. Shame about the prices.
